Abstract

Social networking is a platform to build social relation among people around the world. Facebook is one of the applications widely used by everyone. Now we can share information, ideas, knowledge through social networking sites (SNS). These activities are enjoyed by everyone without any barriers.

Our study focuses on important navigation activities by VI user, explaining navigation barriers and suggesting solutions.
